Safe Teen New Mexico has produced “Smashed: Teen Brains and Alcohol,” a prevention documentary showing the effects alcohol has on teen brains and what teens, parents, and communities can do to create healthy teens. You can order a copy of the movie by clicking on this link. It only costs $10 and is chock full of the latest brain science and prevention efforts addressing underage drinking,
